Rural housing

As part of our Housing Strategy and Rural Economic Strategy, we are supporting the delivery of affordable housing on rural exception sites. Rural exception sites are small plots of land that can be used for housing.

Our goal is to provide rural affordable housing for the local community to help families stay together and prevent the loss of local services.
